Musings: Why You Should Valentine’s Slay

Valentine’s Day is coming up… if you didn’t already know. I mean we’ve all been inundated with the ad campaigns telling you to buy roses, lingerie and chocolate from mid-January so I guess you can never be too prepared for February 14th? I suppose it’s much like detox January, a constant barrage of being told you should do this and do that in order to have a great time with your partner.

What if lo and behold you are severely single with no guy or girl on the horizon? You’ve probably swiped through the whole of London (and possibly the UK and surrounding countries) on your Tinder, Bumble, Plenty of Fish apps. Sometimes you might just not be someone’s catch of the day and all it might make you feel a little glum, you have to remember that you do slay. As long as you believe in yourself, the right person will come along someday.
For the moment…
Celebrate your singleness.
You may never get all this time back, so do you! You’ll have more than enough time when in a relationship to compromise, so as a singleton why shouldn’t it be all about you?

Go and watch Fifty Shades Darker and cringe at *those* scenes. Overfill your basket on half price chocolate day on February 15th or perhaps the best one… Indulge in your secret single behaviour (SSB). If you want to eat those chicken wings in bed or wear the t-shirt with the holes in it without fear of judgement. GO FOR IT.
The best thing you can do is embrace this chapter in your life. It won’t be forever, so turn every page with hope, passion and ambition. You’ll never know who you’ll meet, so be open, accepting but most of all – BE YOU.

    Right on!! Now I’m wondering what my favorite SSB is… eating Nutella straight from the jar, perhaps 😉

    Even if you’re single you should still slay on Valentine’s Day.

    Cute. I was thinking when you said slayage you meant like get all dolled up, love yourself and take yourself on a date.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
